For Double Dip Monday today, I thought I’d post a recipe for an instant meal, more or less. I frequently have some kind of frozen vegetable that I use for baking, such as zucchini or pumpkin, or a fruit such as frozen banana, hiding in the depths of my freezer and no plan for dinner. I throw this together for the three of us, and it works most of the time.
1 cup of pumpkin puree/ grated zucchini/ mashed banana/ apple or pear sauce/ etc.
1-2 tablespoons of sugar, depending on how sweet you want your pancakes
2 tablespoons of oil
Beat all of this together until well incorporated, then add 1 cup of gf flour with 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 tablespoon dried milk, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. You may also add in other flavors such as vanilla or spices. If the mixture is thick, thin with a bit of milk. If the mixture is thin, add in a bit more flour. Depending on how runny my veg/fruit add-in, I generally use somewhere between one cup and 1 1/2 cups of flour.
Make pancakes as normal on a well-greased griddle. Serve with jam, honey, peanut butter, syrup, etc. depending on what flavor you have going.
